CATA— LOGUE


From the 22nd of April until the 1st of May, 2017, THE ART UNION presents the second edition of WHAT THE WEEKEND IS GALLERY – a group exhibition featuring artworks by 80 Berlin-based artists at Alte Münze, a historical mint in the city centre of Berlin. The title of the exhibition is a humorous reference to the Gallery Weekend in Berlin which takes place at the same time. The primary objective of the exhibition is to present the current status of the artistic discourse and the diversity of Berlin‘s urban contemporary art to the public in one exhibition. The genre urban contemporary art is often perceived as flagship and tourist attraction of Germany‘s capital. However, on relevant industryrelated events as Gallery Weekend this genre has been hardly on display before this format was created. Thus, the non-profit art association THE ART UNION intends to build a bridge between artists, art lovers and the art market. Here, urban contemporary art is used as generic term for graffiti, street art, adbusting and urban interventions. The works of all artists presented in this exhibition cannot be found only in public spaces but also in galleries and sometimes in museums. The diversity shown in WHAT THE WEEKEND IS GALLERY reflects the characteristics of Berlin‘s urban contemporary scene, which is shaped by the multiculturality and the generational experience of its protagonists. With a few exceptions, the artists were born after 1980 and originate from the following countries: Argentina, Australia, Chile, Germany, France, Japan, Italy, Canada, Morocco, The Netherlands, Peru, Poland, Russia, Switzerland, Spain, Syria, United Kingdom of Great Britain, and the United States of America. Female artists are not marginalized but also a vital part of the exhibition. THE ART UNION is pleased to present emerging and established positions coequally in WHAT THE WEEKEND IS GALLERY. Enjoy browsing through the catalogue! THE ART UNION

THE ART UNION THE ART UNION is a Berlin-based non-profit art association founded in 2015. It is run by volunteers with extensive experience in the fields of culture and creative industries such as the art market, design industry, and the advertising and press market.

These platforms include exhibitions, participation at festivals and biennial, and networking with relevant players. The Art Union acts independently from political parties and puts great emphasis on artistic freedom.
